Hollywood actresses have been requested to wear pins reading “Time’s Up” to the annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday to help raise awareness about the entertainment industry’s culture of sexual abuse and harassment.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, actresses have been instructed to wear black gowns with a pin reading “Time’s Up” on it, created by the Time’s Up legal fund and costume designer Arianne Phillips to combat sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.
The hottest accessory on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday will be the Time’s Up pin, expected to be worn by leading ladies and men alike to draw attention to the sexual harassment prevention initiative launched Monday by Shonda Rhimes, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and other prominent Hollywood women.
Witherspoon asked costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips (Kingsman, Nocturnal Animals, W.E.) to design the pin during a private meeting last month at CAA where the Time’s Up initiative was hatched by studio heads, producers, agents and actresses who split into discussion groups to tackle different aspects of the issue.
